Void's package manager and build system have been written from scratch.
We use runit as the init system and service supervisor. Flatpak provides a simple and user-friendly way to run, update and create self-contained desktop applications.

Void is a general purpose operating system, based on the monolithic Linux® kernel.
Attempts to restart the browser may result in multiple instances of Firefox or Sea Monkey in the processes list.
You will not be able to start the browser until you first end all browser processes or restart the computer.
Unlike trillions of other existing distros, Void is not a modification of an existing distribution.
function may be safely called from a second thread, while a first thread of control is executing. The solution for standard system call implementations, which must return an error code is to undefine the macro and use the external variable instead. In the minimal implementation, this function always fails, since there is only standard output, which is not a valid file to close. The implementation of this functionality will be tightly bound to any operating infrastructure for handling multiple processes.
In general a function that modifies no static or global state, will be reentrant. However for some calls, reentrancy is not easy to provide automatically, so reentrant versions are provided. For many systems, the issue of reentrancy does not arise. A minimal implementation, such as that for bare metal coding, only offers a single user thread of control.
Its package system allows you to quickly install, update and remove software; software is provided in binary packages or can be built directly from sources with the help of the XBPS source packages collection.
It is available for the Intel x86®, ARM® and MIPS® processor architectures; Software packages can be built natively or cross compiling through the XBPS source packages collection.
